Samsung Magician: Authentication is Required / Unverified

Since recently the Magician has started to behave oddly. It only partly recognizes all the connected disks. Even for those recognized it throws an "Authentication is required" / "Unverified" error.

I'm not sure what could be the cause, as I see even Win10s has the same error. I'm also pretty sure it used to work with the latest Magician 7.1.1.820.

I'm running Win11 and it used to work perfectly, and the Magician used to list even non-Samsung, WDC Disks. I've also installed NVMe Express driver 3.3.

Drives: 970PRO 512GB (nVME), 850EVO 500GB (SATA)

Pictures attached.

Looks like the issue has resolved by itself. So, looks like this software is highly dependent on a Samsung web service. Everything is working as it used to, and it even recognizes WDC HDDs.

What's the "magic" offered by Magician that requires its use ?


I ask because we have Linux servers running Samsung drives and have no requirement for that software ... if it offered any advantages, I'd think Sammy would have it available on OSes other than Win.

Why does it matter? They made it in order to work. It was once working, and now it's not. That's all that matters.
